I have been thinking some more about the various ways we are trying to sort the cryptids of which we are aware, and we might be looking at it wrong.
The bigfoot guys are might be grouped all into one bunch–ranging along more of a spectrum than cut into clear groups of different kinds. When we are trying over long periods to sort them and we keep getting more confused, it might be better to lump them until we know more. When we do know more, we will be able to parse this out.
Dogman is another thing entirely that I will not work into this post.
